Want to buy or use your own supplies? That’s great, too! Reference the above list for an idea of what you’ll need. You do not need to use the exact paint colors listed. It’s up to you, your budget, and your preferences. A paint set is a good starter option that offers a nice variety of colors. Use either paint from a tube or in pans. It is recommended that you pick up at least a round #6 watercolor brush — these are very versatile!
